Nearly a Friday finish!

Hi everyone! I was having lunch today - nothing special - just homemade vegetable broth - I'm on a sugar free as possible diet!! - seriously!! And it was whilst slurping my soup that I realised I haven't got my Friday finish finished!!! Help! What to do when I need wheels to finish my pull toy Easter bunny - you remember the one Angi was offering as a freebie.

Well I'm still searching for wheels but I quickly painted the base and stitched on the bunny's ears , eyes and nose and glued it to the base and here it is ~

Bit of a cutie, I think! Thanks Angi for the pattern - really easy to make!! I made him from some over- dyed wool~
I can hardly say I've got a collection of pull toys, but I'll show you the other two in my home.
This sheep is unfortunately not hand made but it is pretty big and I love Americana.... so I brought him home~

And another farm animal pull toy - a lovely fat cow made from resin but a special gift from a friend who knows all the things I love to decorate with!
So there you go from a mild spring like N. Ireland!
Hope you enjoy your weekend!

Welcome to all my new stitching followers - so many talented crafters, I'm delighted to meet you! Looking forward to hearing from you!

Best wishes

  9. Christine, I downloaded that same pattern and was just looking at it last night and was overwhelmed by where I would find wheels. I love yours!! It looks so awesome. You did such a great job. Now I really want to get mine done. Even if it doesn't become a pull toy:) I also love the other pull toys you have. 3 makes a collection you know:) -Steph-

  10. Hey Christine.. did you figure out where to find some wheels for your most adorable Bunny..So perfectly Prim..
    Maybe I can help..if you have any kind of craft store around you go to the packaged wood section.Not sure i can explain them to you but You should be able to find a package of wood circles with a hole in the center.They are used for small Candle stick bases. about a 3/4" circle x 1/4 thick.
    They are ridged/rounded so they look just like a wheel. Now if that doesn't work you can also use thick wood buttons. Actually the candle stick base looks like a button on it has a larger hole in the center for the screw or nail rather then two in a button. If you use a button simply use a drill to drill out the denter of the button to make it a single hole big enough for a screw or nail. They work just as well & easier to find generally.
    If I can remember I will take a picture of one and email it to you. Anyway you simply use a nail with a large head or a screw to attach it to your base, leaving it loose enough that it can spin and waa-laa wheels for your pull toys.
    send me a reminder to take a pic of one and send it to you.. I have used them for wheels for years..
    Hope that helps!

    Have a Great Day!


  11. Hi Christine your bunny is fantastic..If you check out on the back of the pattern I added the link to where to purchase the metal wheels from..It is in the states but they only take a week to get all the way over here and they are a great company to deal with..XX

  12. G'day Christine love your rabbit, they are a bit of a fav, along with sheep, cows, goats oh and pigs.
